What sets Polish design apart? What makes it special and unique? Because of its design culture, which produces primarily high-quality furniture and product design, Poland has long been established as a country with a vibrant independent scene. Experts from this year’s VIENNA DESIGN WEEK Guest Country will shine a light on this tradition and also emerging trends. Whether designers returning after residencies abroad or others who establish themselves on international markets from a base in Poland, the ways to manage a balancing act between a brand’s commercial success and local identity are as varied as the speakers themselves.
